IVDP (intervertebral disc prolapse) has become the most common problem now. Disc prolapse can occur anywhere in the vertebral column, which causes compression of the nerve root, resulting in radiating pain, numbness, weakness, and restriction in movements. In Ayurveda, it is considered vata vyadhi. It can be caused by trauma, an improper diet and regimen, obesity, overexertion, etc.

This condition can be managed by internal medicines and external therapies. As the condition is due to vata aggravation, ,basic line of management is to pacify vata by performing panchakarma therapies. Therapies are carried out according to the intensity of disc protrusion. Ayurveda has a very effective prognosis up to the stage of extrusion. Therapies such as patrapotala swedam, dhanyamladhara, and various types of vastis are used.
